InToxic Talk, Bill Press exposed the ways in which the extreme right-wing media has done an end run around the American voting populace by exerting a disproportionate control over open political debate. InThe Obama Hate Machine, Press returns to show how the Right has taken rhetoric to slanderous new levels in attacking the nation’s forty-fourth president.But presidents have always been attacked like this, right?Wrong.As the author shows, while presidents and presidential candidates routinely have been subject to personal attacks, the outright disdain Obama’s extremist opponents have for the facts has inspired an insidious brand of character assassination unique in contemporary politics.Obama was born in Kenya . . . Obama sympathizes with Muslim terrorists . . . Obama is a communist who wants to institute death panels and touch off class warfare…The extent to which these unfounded assertions have taken hold in the American mindset shows just how ruthless, destructive, and all-powerful the right-wing machine—hijacked by extremists in the media and fueled by corporate coffers—has become. The author reveals how corporate interests such as the infamous Koch Brothers continue to steer political coverage away from fact-based dialogue into the realm of hysteria. Bill Press also observes this phenomenon is not limited to the airwaves and provides an “I Hate Obama Book Club” list, calling out the scores of anti-Obama tomes—and even some from the Left—that have helped drag politics even deeper into the mud.In his characteristic on-the-mark arguments sure to appeal to anyone on the Left or in the Center, Press shows how the peculiar nature of Obama-hating subverts issue-driven debate and threatens not only the outcome of the 2012 election but the future of the American democratic system.

Bill Press hosts "The Spin Room" with Tucker Carlson on CNN. He's also the co-host of "Crossfire", CNN's dynamic political debate program. His twice-weekly column is distributed by the "Los Angels Times Syndicate" to newspapers across the country. Before joining CNN, Press enjoyed a high-profile career in government, politics, and broadcasting that spanned more than two decades. He was chairman of the California Democratic Party, chief of staff to California State Senator Peter Behr, and director of the California Office of Planning and Research under Governor Jerry Brown. Press is an award-winning radio show host and television commentator. He has received numerous awards including four Emmys and a Gold Mic award. He was named Best Commentator of the year by the Associated Press in 1992. His latest book is entitled, Toxic Talk.
